Dwarf Seahorse

Dwarf Seahorse in a 3 gallon eclipse tank. These seahorses grow up to about 1/2 an inch!

Hi, thanks for your note. The little dwarf seahorses sure are cute. I was lucky that my local pet shop had them. Maybe you can request your local shop to order them for you -- they seem to be pretty easy to take care of -- don't need much space, etc. I placed them into a new little 2.5 gallon set up just for the dwarf seahorses and added some seaweed -- they just love it. Hopefully they will have offsprings soon.

Hi Azislis 24... I think that these very small "dwarf seahorses" would be ok in a 5 gallon tank. I currently have mine in a 2.5 gallon tank. I'm not sure how big the star eye hermit crabs are, but if they are less than an inch big, then i'm sure they would be fine! (Just want to make sure that the crab can't go after the little sea horses). If you have to ask your local shop to order them for you, make sure they know you want a little "dwarf seahorse" they only grow to be about half an inch! The last thing you want is for them to get you some other type of seahorse that would be 6 inches or larger for such a small tank! But if you can locate the dwafs and the crab is cool, go for it! :-) Just make sure you get some seaweed for them. Also for feeding, I have a little brine shrimp hatcher in my tank. (I just throw the eggs into the hatcher, and these newly hatched little baby brine shrimp seem to be doing the trick for mine!) They have been pretty hearty and easy to take care of. Hope this helps. Good luck!

You're probably talking about New World Aquarium, right? They are really cool, and I've found that they have a great selection. You're right that their prices may be a bit higher than some other shops, but sometimes (not always) it's ok to splurge on a nice coral or whatnot. The dwarf seahorses I acquired from Petqua on the upper west side.
